The Women’s Refugee Commission  research focuses on the needs of  refugees , identifies solutions and advocates for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice. This research was conducted in Ecuador, Lebanon, Uganda, and India,  where the emphasis is  on the urban refugees who face gender-based violence risks as a result of multiple and complex unmet social, medical, and economic needs, as well as intersecting oppressions based on race, ethnicity, nationality, language, class, gender, sexual orientation, and disability. The project looked separately at the GBV risks of different urban refugee subpopulations: women; adolescent girls; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) individuals; persons with disabilities; and male survivors of sexual violence. Refugees engaged in sex work were added as a subpopulation, due to their invisibility and the heightened GBV risks they face.
